Chinese Stir Fry Chicken and Vegetables - this healthy stir fry is so much better than takeout - the Chinese stir fry sauce is the secret

I’ve been trying to come up with easy recipes for one of my boys who’s in college and cooking for himself. I’ve already posted an easy recipe for Pan Roasted Chicken and Vegetables and Healthy Ramen Noodle .This week, I’m shipping him a batch of an extremely versatile stir fry sauce that I’m calling The Best Stir Fry Sauce because it is my go-to combination of Chinese sauces and ingredients when I stir fry. I actually tried finding a good stir fry sauce at our local Asian grocery store, but couldn’t find anything, so I decided to make my own. I’m not sure why I never thought to do this for myself all these years.

Stir frying is a quick and easy, healthy meal, especially if you have ready made stir fry sauce handy. All you need are some vegetables (most supermarkets carry pre-cut stir-fry vegetable mixes if you don’t feel like doing any prepping) and a lean protein. I like to use garlic, ginger and/or scallions as aromatics, but you can use chopped onion too.

Here’s the basic formula for an amazing stir-fry that is healthier than takeout and absolutely delicious:

Choose a lean protein:

Choose a variety of fresh vegetables:

Choose one or morearomatics:

Stir-Fry Method (serves 3-4 people, depending on how hungry you are):

Note: If you’re cooking for one person, simply halve or quarter the above recipe.


Serves: enough to marinade 10 pounds of protein




This sauce should keep for several months in the refrigerator.
